An R&B vocal trio from Los Angeles, California, USA. The falsetto lead in soul music was especially strong in the genre of stand-up vocal groups, and from the groups of the 60s, the Invincibles were perhaps one of the greatest practitioners of the falsetto-edged vocal harmony style. The group members were David Richardson, Lester Johnson and Clifton Knight. Richardson was originally from Louisiana and brought a background in gospel singing to the group. Johnson and Knight both came from Texas. The Invincibles’ best work was demonstrated on two superb hits, ‘Heart Full Of Love’ (number 31 R&B) from 1965, and ‘Can’t Win’ (number 38 R&B) from 1966, both of which went beyond mere sweetness to exhibit deep, soulful feeling. However, the Invincibles faded after these two records.
